We Can Stop It
They try to stop the war on drugs.
They even try to take our guns.
Yet, crazy people can run free.
No one listens to their plea,
Not until they become a threat,
Will people wake up and have regrets,
Then sure enough what do they blame?
They blame it on their very name.
They blame it on their faith or race,
They blame it on time’s speedy pace.
Not one blame goes to the cause,
To blame it on the real flaws.
Mental illness is on the rise.
We need to see it recognized.
Stop it! Now while we can;
Take the threat away from them.
